Park Mark success for District Council
08th February 2012
Safer parking is now easy to find for drivers in Three Rivers after 17 local car parks were awarded Park Mark accreditation.
The Council's car parks have recently been given the Park Mark safety award following an inspection by Herts Police and the British Parking Association.
Councillor Martin Trevett, Portfolio Holder for Environment said: “I’m delighted we have secured this accolade for our car parks. This means that Three Rivers now has more Park Mark awarded car parks than any other district in Hertfordshire and one of the highest in the country!
"The Park Mark award is a great way for residents in Three Rivers to make informed decisions on where to park their vehicle. Users feel safe and confident their vehicles are being well looked after.”
Peter Kerr, Projects Manager at Three Rivers Council, said: “By choosing a Park Mark safer parking facility motorists are visiting a car park that has been vetted by the Police and has measures in place to create a safer environment for motorists and vehicles in terms of lighting, regular patrols by Civil Enforcement Officers, regular maintenance, clear signage and openness of aspect.”
Park Mark is an initiative by the Association of Chief Police Officers supported by The British Parking Association and aims to reduce crime and the fear of crime in parking facilities. For more information please visit www.parkmark.co.uk.
The Ferry car park, Chorleywood has already held the award for three years - giving a total of 18 car parks with the award.
